LP13 Discussion - Rumor Has It: Sirens, iTunes Festival, etc.

Out of nowhere, the rumor mill has gone into full force!

- Our favorite tabloid, 'The Sun', reported that the comeback is on for this year. The band are 'very confident' and feel like the wait has been worth it. They also report that the album will be released this year, most likely in November.
- They speculate that the band might be playing the iTunes Festival at London's Roundhouse in September, following the release of the first single.

Universal Music Colombia: U2's 'Sirens' Album Ready in September

- Universal Music Colombia tweeted out on July 24th that the name of the album will be called 'Sirens' and will be ready by September.
- U2Valencia has speculated that the single will be called 'Siren' (without the s).

Let the speculating, discussing and bitching continue! Your daily dose of U2:

I hope that u2valencia has a little something behind their speculation, otherwise that's just dumb

also,
U2Valencia have been dropping hints about Sirens since early July, including a tweet from July 5, and this FB cover photo.. which is apparently an illustration of a siren's circuit board

Im not sure who they belonged to or what the big deal was all about. Sirens.

I was just reading the Odyssey.

If the album is Sirens then those who complain about titles like "All that you can't leave behind including dismantling an atomic bomb on the horizon" will be happy.

Chris Broussard is 70% sure that U2Valencia is trolling the U2 fan base in a big way right now.

If there's any legitimacy to this at all, then apparently an insider source is working with U2Valencia to leak out information. Otherwise, why would U2Valencia be so coy about it? Wouldn't they rather just scoop all the other U2 sites and scream "WE HAVE JUST LEARNED THAT THE NEW U2 ALBUM AND/OR SINGLE IS SIREN!!!!!"

as this is a new thread, it's worth reposting artdirector's scoop too.

Quote:
So here's some news...and Im not one to post unless its credible. The album will be released this year. Late October early november. Official single to come out late september/early october. The tour will be announced in December with the first date sometime in March/April. The band are looking to release a high paced single to kick off the album.

This comes from the same friend who had given me news for the last 14 years starting with ATYCLB and HTDAAB. He works at universal music in L.A. Things may change but thats what the band have agreed to. Now he did say he believes the band have struggled with this album because Paul McGuinness has not been actively involved with their day to day studio work. Looks like they need their 5 member more than ever. Thats what I know.

Man...I ain't even going to get excited about this shit anymore. The news sites are getting really bad about just reporting whatever the fuck they read on the Internet, at least with this band.

Cautiously optimistic. You would think pretty soon the band will have to at least address the rumors since outlets are picking up on it left and right.
